The Gallery at Sulfur Studios invites artists working in all media to submit work for their winter national juried exhibition Re::Claimed. Submitted work must utilize materials and/or imagery that are found, reclaimed, recycled or re-purposed. Artists are encouraged to consider the previous life of their materials and how that material can be highlighted or transformed to support the concept of the work.
Guest Juror for this exhibition will be Lisa D. Watson
Work must weigh less than 75 pounds and fit through a standard size doorway. Shipping and insurance to and from the gallery will be the responsibility of the artist. Sulfur Studios will handle all sales and a 30% commission will be retained by the gallery.

Lisa D. Watson is a Georgia based artist and garden designer whose environmental and social concerns are expressed in each project. Her artwork contains 90% reclaimed material such as paper products, metal, industrial wood, produce netting and more. She has used recycled objects as her medium for over 25 years and continually works towards a fully sustainable practice.
Lisa has exhibited work nationally including solo exhibitions in Montclair, NJ and Los Angeles, CA. Her recent solo exhibition, Avanguardia, displayed in Telfair Museum’s The Jepson Center and The Fine Arts Gallery at Georgia Southern University, explored the disconnect inherent in how we view the natural world from the window of a car. Using salvaged materials, Lisa seeks a balance between urbanization and conservation in the work.
She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Columbus College of Art & Design - Ohio and an Certificate of Interior Design from LTU - Chatsworth, California.
Lisa works out of her Savannah studio and lives with her husband Don along with their two rescued cats."
